BEFORE USING YOU HAVE TO VALIDATE YOUR TICKET! CHECK OUT THE EXAMPLE IN THE ATTACHMENT! YOU CAN FIND IN THE INTERNET THE LIST OF TRAIN STATIONS ABLE TO VALIDATE AND YOU FIND ALSO WRITTEN IN THE GUIDE YOU RECEIVE HOME AFTER BUYING THE TICKET.
And when it is written it is compulsory it really means you must book a sit in the train! Otherwise you will not get into the train (and if you get into the train you’ll be kicked out by the train controllers). They will ask you your Eurail Pass AND the reservation ticket!
* Brazilian are allowed to travel for 3 months throughout Schengen countries WITHOUT VISA. If you are not brazilian nor European check out if you need a visa before traveling. If you are a brazilian and want to spend more than 3 months in Schengen countries you should ask for a visa in Brazil.
* Brazilians have 6 months to get to England after getting into Europe. When getting to England you have to get in the non-Europeans line and answer some questions before getting officially inside the UK. Never forget to buy the way back ticket and reservate a hostel or hotel, they ask you to show these documents. If you are couchsurfing ask your host if you can write down his home address in the official letter (you are suposed to write where you will spend the days) as soon as you get to one of the airports in London.
